Before coaching, Coach Britten was at two-year varsity letterman at Saginaw High School, where she played defensive specialist, in addition to playing club at EMV for four seasons, from 14s to 17s in a variety of positions.

Since the beginning of her coaching journey, Britten has coached girls anywhere from the ages of 12 to 17, double-qualifying for the Girls' Junior National Championship while assisting Coach Chris during the 2018-2019 season. This success and the growth she sees in her players from beginning to end of each season make her excited to return to the EMV family for the 2021-22 season
